STRINGSTRING
MORC2 protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"MORC2" - MORC family CW-type zinc finger protein 2 in Homo sapiens
Nodes:
Network nodes represent proteins
splice isoforms or post-translational modifications are collapsed, i.e. each node represents all the proteins produced by a single, protein-coding gene locus.
Node Color
colored nodes:
query proteins and first shell of interactors
white nodes:
second shell of interactors
Node Content
empty nodes:
proteins of unknown 3D structure
filled nodes:
some 3D structure is known or predicted
Edges:
Edges represent protein-protein associations
associations are meant to be specific and meaningful, i.e. proteins jointly contribute to a shared function; this does not necessarily mean they are physically binding each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

MORC2MORC family CW-type zinc finger protein 2; Exhibits a cytosolic function in lipogenesis, adipogenic differentiation, and lipid homeostasis by increasing the activity of ACLY, possibly preventing its dephosphorylation. May act as a transcriptional repressor. Down-regulates CA9 expression; Zinc fingers CW-type (970 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
YIPF2
Protein YIPF2; Yip1 domain family member 2 (316 aa)
           
  0.684
MORC1
MORC family CW-type zinc finger protein 1; Required for spermatogenesis; Zinc fingers CW-type (984 aa)
       
 
0.595
PAK1
Serine/threonine-protein kinase PAK 1; Protein kinase involved in intracellular signaling pathways downstream of integrins and receptor-type kinases that plays an important role in cytoskeleton dynamics, in cell adhesion, migration, proliferation, apoptosis, mitosis, and in vesicle-mediated transport processes. Can directly phosphorylate BAD and protects cells against apoptosis. Activated by interaction with CDC42 and RAC1. Functions as GTPase effector that links the Rho-related GTPases CDC42 and RAC1 to the JNK MAP kinase pathway. Phosphorylates and activates MAP2K1, and thereby media [...] (553 aa)

CCAR2
Cell cycle and apoptosis regulator protein 2; Core component of the DBIRD complex, a multiprotein complex that acts at the interface between core mRNP particles and RNA polymerase II (RNAPII) and integrates transcript elongation with the regulation of alternative splicing- the DBIRD complex affects local transcript elongation rates and alternative splicing of a large set of exons embedded in (A + T)-rich DNA regions. Inhibits SIRT1 deacetylase activity leading to increasing levels of p53/TP53 acetylation and p53-mediated apoptosis. Inhibits SUV39H1 methyltransferase activity. As part o [...] (923 aa)
     
   
  0.530
WDR75
WD repeat-containing protein 75; Ribosome biogenesis factor. Involved in nucleolar processing of pre-18S ribosomal RNA. Required for optimal pre- ribosomal RNA transcription by RNA polymerase I; UTPa subcomplex (830 aa)
           
  0.524
SHCBP1
SHC SH2 domain-binding protein 1; May play a role in signaling pathways governing cellular proliferation, cell growth and differentiation. May be a component of a novel signaling pathway downstream of Shc. Acts as a positive regulator of FGF signaling in neural progenitor cells (672 aa)
           
  0.513
TRIM28
Transcription intermediary factor 1-beta; Nuclear corepressor for KRAB domain-containing zinc finger proteins (KRAB-ZFPs). Mediates gene silencing by recruiting CHD3, a subunit of the nucleosome remodeling and deacetylation (NuRD) complex, and SETDB1 (which specifically methylates histone H3 at ’Lys-9’ (H3K9me)) to the promoter regions of KRAB target genes. Enhances transcriptional repression by coordinating the increase in H3K9me, the decrease in histone H3 ’Lys-9 and ’Lys-14’ acetylation (H3K9ac and H3K14ac, respectively) and the disposition of HP1 proteins to silence gene expression [...] (835 aa)
     
   
  0.495
WDR76
WD repeat-containing protein 76; Specifically binds 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC), suggesting that it acts as a specific reader of 5hmC; WD repeat domain containing (626 aa)
 
       
  0.493
NUP88
Nuclear pore complex protein Nup88; Essential component of nuclear pore complex; Nucleoporins (741 aa)
     
   
  0.462
HAUS5
HAUS augmin-like complex subunit 5; Contributes to mitotic spindle assembly, maintenance of centrosome integrity and completion of cytokinesis as part of the HAUS augmin-like complex (633 aa)
